Burn Up Excess is also available for digital download from the Playstation Network Store. I’ve downloaded a few episodes from there. It’s a pretty enjoyable series.

they should re-release this again on DVD, like they did with Those Who Hunt Elves and Burn Up.

I wish they would as well. I would buy it in a heart beat. Maybe we will get lucky and it will be one of those titles that transfers from AeSir/ADV to Sentai.

I actually got lucky enough last May to score one of the last few copies copies of the complete collection Rightstuf had during a S23 sale no less. Managed to get it and Burn Up W actually.
